A single cask whisky from Glentauchers, bottled for the Cask Strength Collection by Signatory. Distilled on February 6th 1996 and bottled exactly 16 years later on February 6th 2012 after maturing in a bourbon barrel.
A long-aged 1976 vintage from the very seldom-seen Glentauchers distillery, this was bottled from a single bourbon hogshead that yielded just 150 bottles. Glentauchers keeps less than 1% of its spirit back for bottling as single malt, with the rest going into owner Pernod Ricard's blends, particularly Ballantine's.
